Hey, thanks for checking out my Review Policy.
If you are an author or publisher and are looking to have me review your book or to send me a physical copy; please send an email to: LauraZReads (at) Gmail (dot) com with the subject: REVIEW REQUEST.
I do not guarantee that I will respond to all emails, or that I will agree to read and/or review any books that are sent to me, but will attempt to reply in a timely manner.
I accept physical paperback or hardcover copies (No manuscripts, WIPs, etc.) and I accept Kindle Ebooks.
These are currently the genres that I will read/review:
- Young Adult

- Historical Fiction & Historical Romance

I currently post my reviews on my blog as well as Goodreads, Amazon, and Instagram. Other social media outlets will be utilized at my discretion upon request.
I utilize Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Goodreads, Shelfari, Tumblr, Instagram, and LibraryThing as social media outlets.
I will not accept any type of compensation for my honest reviews. I am open to doing sponsored posts or videos on my YouTube Channel. Please email me to discuss this.
I do post ‘Did Not Finish’ reviews however they will remain respectful to both the author and the publisher if this occurs.
I will attempt to review all books that I receive for review; however I cannot promise that every book will be read and reviewed.
I prefer to have books in advance of their release date with enough time to read it, write a review, and post it prior to or on the release date.
I will accept ARCs and finished copies for Giveaways as well.
All questions can be forwarded to: LauraZReads(at)Gmail(dot)com
I am open to do guest posts and author interviews as well! Please email me to set up!
I rate my books on a “Star” system:
0 Stars: DNF
1 Star: I really did not like it and would not recommend it.
2 Stars: I did not like it but I can see others liking it if it’s in their comfort zone.
3 Stars: I liked it and would recommend it.
4 Stars: I really liked it and will recommend to anyone who likes this genre.
5: I Loved it and will recommend it to anyone, regardless of what they typically read.
I rate my books on plot, setting, writing, pacing, characters, world-building mainly.
All books that I review, unless noted, are purchased by myself and are not sponsored reviews or posts.
